How Bruno is preparing for pre-season training

Friday 14 July 2023 11:16

Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes has been working hard with a group of fellow professionals, ahead of returning to Carrington for pre-season training.

Despite being off, Fernandes always keeps himself in great shape and he has been sharing an insight into his workouts via Instagram.

As his followers have seen, the playmaker has been training with his Portugal team-mates Joao Cancelo and Rafael Leao, plus England midfielder Declan Rice. 

"Having fun and working hard with some ballers," said Bruno on social. 

In footage that has been shared by the players, Bruno can be seen hitting a sweet volley into the back of the net from distance and Rice is clearly impressed!

Take a look below…


Our Portuguese magnifico is one of several Reds who have been enjoying their summer breaks after participating in international fixtures at the end of last season.

Erik ten Hag has confirmed that group of players will return to United’s training ground on Saturday, to join the squad of non-internationals that reported back for pre-season on 6 July. 

The manager has also suggested they are unlikely to feature in Wednesday's friendly against Lyon in Edinburgh, which you can watch live on MUTV.

Coverage starts at 13:00 BST, one hour ahead of kick-off in the Scottish capital.


United fans around the world are all excited to see Bruno playing alongside our new signing, Mason Mount. The playmakers have been fierce competitors in the past, but are now team-mates with a common goal. 

Mount made his first United appearance in our 2-0 win over Leeds and he impressed during a 45-minute display, showing off his creativity and attacking threat. 

It seems Bruno watched the match live on MUTV because soon after, he commented on Mason's Instagram post with the words: "Looking sharp."

The duo are expected to train together for the first time this weekend. Make sure to revisit the United App and for exclusive coverage.

During our signing interview, Mount looked forward to joining a United midfield that features Fernandes, as well as the likes of Casemiro, Christian Eriksen, Fred and Scott McTominay. 

"Yeah, I mean, you look at the players that are in midfield and it's vastly experienced of obviously winning major trophies and there are quality players," said Mason. "And being able to kind of learn from them as well and, and bringing my style into the team, that's what it's all about."
